Face-Shaped Wine Glass Makes Wine Taste And Smell Better

By

A wine-lovin' industrial designer just created a perfectly-shaped glass that will change the way you experience cheap wine for the rest of your life.

The genius invention -- created by James Piatt -- is called the Wine Glass Mask, and it's unlike any other wine glass you've ever drank from.

Instead of a generic circular opening at the rim, the glass is shaped to fit your face so you can comfortably drink the wine and experience all of its delicious tastes and smells.

At first, I thought the shape of the glass was meant to prevent spilling (I can't even tell you how many of my shirts are ruined from merlot stains), but it does much more than that.

The revolutionary Wine Glass Mask was made to decrease the flow of oxygen so you can experience the full bouquet of the beverage while drinking your favorite wine.

Yes, this means it will make cheap wine taste better -- so go ahead and stock up on some Franzia.

While drinking from the Wine Glass Mask, you'll realize the smell is stronger because of the venturi nozzles on the front of the glass.

Piatt describes the phenomenon of the "Venturi Effect" on his Kickstarter page, saying,

The venturi nozzles on the front of the Wine Glass Mask™ reduce the flow of oxygen and nitrogen and increase their velocity entering the wine aroma mixing chamber as you breathe in. The added air speed lifts more wine vapors off the surface enriching the aroma and flavor.

In other words, this glass will intensify your wine-drinking experience by concentrating its fragrances and controlling the oxygen flow.

Not to mention, these glasses look pretty badass.

If you roll up to a wine night with one of these babies, your friends are going to know you mean business.

The glass comes in two different colors: Crystal Clear and Blue Luster.

If you're dying to own one of them, go to Piatt's Kickstarter page. He's currently trying to raise money to back this invention, and if he doesn't reach his goal by March 4, his funds will disappear.

Depending on the package you donate to, you'll receive a Wine Glass Mask in the mail.

After reading about his invention, drinking wine from anything less than a "Glass Mask" sounds mediocre -- and I don't want to be a mediocre wine drinker.

I need seven of these (one for each day of the week, duh).
